Clipper Averechts first touched water in the year 1892. Like the majority of the ships that time, the Averechts was built to transport loads of cargo from one port to another. An extensive renovation in 1995 turned her into one of the finest charter boats sailing the Wadden Sea and Lake IJssel, and gained her multiple stars in ranking.
Sailing with the two-masted clipper Averechts is an experience to forever remember. A great sailing adventure awaits aboard this beautiful ship!
On deck, an inviting seating area offers outstanding views during your sailing trip. There is plenty of room to walk around or sit back and relax on the roof of the ship.
The day room is fitted with large tables and entertainment such as a guitar, lots of games, WiFi, a good stereo set and iPod-connection. Whenever it is too cold inside, the central heating will make sure there is a pleasant temperature below deck. This makes the Averechts an excellent choice for off-season sailing trips through the ever changing Dutch landscape.
